Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn each scored two goals and Sergei Gonchar had four assists as the Dallas Stars beat the Winnipeg Jets 6-4 on Saturday afternoon.

The victory halted a two-game skid for the Stars, who only have four wins in their past 10 games.

Dallas rookie Valeri Nichushkin also scored a goal and center Colton Sceviour scored his first NHL goal.

Kari Lehtonen, playing his 200th game for the Stars and 404th career NHL game, stopped 34 of the 38 shots he faced.

Blake Wheeler had a pair of goals, Matt Halischuk also scored and Olli Jokinen added a goal and assist for Winnipeg, which is winless in its past six home games.

Seguin opened the scoring when he took a long pass from Gonchar at the blue line, skated in alone and fired a high shot over Pavelec’s blocker at 7:14 of the first for his 16th goal of the season.

Three minutes later, Halischuk scored by banging in a rebound to make it 1-1.

Nichushkin put Dallas ahead 2-1 with an unassisted goal. The first-round pick crossed the blue line, went around a defender and then in alone on Pavelec to score at 14:24.

Wheeler and Benn each scored a pair of goals in the second period.

Wheeler tied the game againwhen he skated across the front of the net before firing in a sharp-angled shot to make it 3-3 at 14:53.

But Dallas scored two power-play goals in a span of one minute and three seconds when Benn scored his ninth of the season and Seguin put through a one-timer for his 17th.

Sceviour made it 6-3 at 2:48 of the third when he went on a breakaway, drew Montoya out of the net and then scored with a backhand shot.
